Over the past 2 years Gelbooru has gone from best booru to worst:
>shitty ads
>forced anti-adblock in various degrees of awful
>removal of inline image expansion
>can't save the original image from the preview page anymore
>now all thumbnails are gone for no reason and the owners are smug pieces of shit


Into the trash it goes. Feels good to finally remove that bookmark

I wish thre was a site rite over the years : D

>all thumbnails are gone
>forced anti-adblock
If you can't even properly use adblockers, you don't deserve free porn.

Also:
>not just looking up tags on pixiv
Boorus nowadays can't even be bothered to have everything uploaded there. Most of the time you only barely have half of the stuff from any given artist.
The only thing Boorus are good for is finding decent CG sets, that's about it.

What are you talking about? I'm browsing gelbooru for years and all changes I've noticed were for good.
>shitty ads
You know you can choose ad type in accoint options, right? Banners may be disabled like totally in exchange for tabs showing up on the background. Also yeah, if you're dick and want developers go bust - proper use of adblock does it pretty fine as well as previous anon said. Anyway, these banners don't seem much of distraction to me, the only complaint is that some have 3d girls on them. Yikes.
>removal of inline image expansion
You sure there is such thing? There may be user script for this I guess which you've installed and forgot about and now it's broken for some reason, but I really can't remember that function by default.
>can't save the original image from the preview page anymore
Same.
>now all thumbnails are gone for no reason
The reason is you should update your browser once five years at least and stop using dial-up. The only issue I've seen recently was delayed thumbs loading with "Download" text as placeholder while torrents client was open and now it works well even on my shitty 3g. The site is quite stable actually compared to the past: you could bump on a page of images that weren't loading because their hdd fell on the floor or something. That's not a thing anymore since backup server was set up.
I just mean the site is renovated constantly for our convenience and if you can't access the free porn treasury for a brief moment during the day - that's not a reason to whine.
>>4766628
Yeah, there's never enough uploaders. Probably because of high standarts boorus set - 35 tags per image is strong average while it's rarely more than ten on pixiv. By the way, few accounts are wiped from pixiv every day and boorus are the only place with these arts still persistent. Don't know if there are lot of exclusives though since boorus are more west-oriented. Still get majority of arts from there.
>>
>>4766719
If you have adblock turned on, all the thumbnails vanish.
>>
>>4766719
The thumbnail thing isn't just a browser issue, there's a thread on their forum where several people reported having that problem on a number of devices and even without adblock.
The admin says it's fixed now and the thread is locked, but it's still giving me crap, so I'm hammering away trying to see if I can accidentally a solution.
>>
>>4766723
What's your adblock? Good one has manual setup where user can pick which mediatypes or sections to hide. Also try resetting cache and cookies so browser could replace broken scripts with fresh ones.
>>
>>4766623
thanks for the blog post.
>>
Speaking of shitty websites, is Exhentai not working for some people on Firefox? Recently, I haven't been able to get into it. It just shows a white screen, no sad panda or anything.
>>
>>4766719
Ok, I give you that. Some japs like to delete their art for good (or hide it behind that myPixiv bs) and most of the time the only way to see them again is to look them up on boorus. That's the only reason why I still look up gelbooru from time to time. Well, that and seeing stuff from artists who only upload on Nijie because I can't be arsed to make an account there.

Wait, so were thumbs gone like suddenly because of maintenance/bug/machines rebellion or you just turned ad filters on and didn't notice an alert? In second case it's meant to be that way, there are known workarounds mentioned above. If so and thumbs aren't back yet - calm down and check if gelbooru works on another browser, Edge/IE will do. Site was stable lately though, try to flush cache again and restore default options on adblock because it's still active for some reason.
>>4768075
Gelbooru is looking good, it is lightweight and very easy to use, also provides best searching functionality among all sites I know. Moderation is great, tag wiki is convenient and you don't have to rip your ass just to get fullsized images. Geez, some services these days don't even let you save the pictures. I think all these advantages are more than worth dealing with some questionable decisions owner makes. Yes I'm addicted to this site but I'm not a mod and I hope they're not around to read your bullshit.
Again, change ads type in account management (you have account, right?), thumbs will be fine and you'll get rid of banners. Ad windows will appear once a day or so but they may be also blocked in browser itself, look for globe button on the left of adress bar (in chrome at least).
If you really want to solve the problem program way - read how to bypass adblock detection or make some private filters, don't just spam your addon on and off, it won't magically fix the issue. If it works for someone - it may work for you as well. But judging by your posts you just need a place to spit the acid, can't help with that.

Gelbooru's ads almost look underage. Instantly closed tab and haven't been back since.

Sankaku also now has some "click here to turn off adblocker" page that seems like a massive virus trap, so screw that place too.

Which ones are still good for finding new stuff?

Gelbooru only hits me with an ad like once a day. Definitely way more tolerable than Paheal which is every fucking thumbnail.

>>4768075
Sankaku is shit and you know it. It's asinine I have to log onto a separate domain to see jav. Gel also have active uploaders and only rips 80% of it's content from Danbooru instead of 95% like Sancom with 5% being shitty SFM. Only reason I use Sankaku is because they have a not shit mobile app.

>>4766628
Pixiv is a hell to navigate without premium. They can't even tag their own shit. Their mobile app downloads sample images or some shit and is fucking trash.

Gelbooru is still the best place to be. It has everything Danbooru has, loli/shota and jav. the only things it lacks is a dedicated mobile app and a user base that fucking tags.

When that sort of shit shit goes away I won't mind turning off the adblocker for a site. But luckily uBlock Origin got updated so Gelbooru functions normally again.

>pixiv mobile app downloads sample images
only by default, just like the desktop site
you have to click the little icon to open fullsize

you're right about the tagging though, characters and series get tagged pretty consistently but fetishes or anything else is a big nope

so nowadays I just go to https://www.pixiv.net/search.php?word=r-18%20(100%20OR%20500)&order=date_d&p=2 which is the R-18 content filtered with at least 100 likes (which works even without premium), starting on page 2 because on page 1 you'll often miss pics that only get enough likes after a day or two

with this and checking the R-18 of my favorite series every few days or weeks (depending on popularity) I feel like I find everything worth finding

Not either of the people you're replying to; I don't feel you're approaching the problem from the right direction. The fact Gelbooru chose to serve ads isn't problematic by itself. The problem is that these ads are obnoxious, borderline malicious level of shady (>>4769470's experience of getting antivirus go cray cray isn't surprising), and that the site owners went extra mile in making them difficult to block. From what I've seen, the ads were, at least for some time, served in a very similar way thumbnails are, which led people who just right click -> block to have the thumbnails blocked on their end. Which, in turn, led to disabling adblocks being the "fix" for missing thumbnails. With a side effect (or rather, intention) of bombaring these users with questionable ads. Fuck that. I'm not sure what the current issue with thumbnails is supposed to be, but I'm sure it's fallout from that.

And here comes another thing: As a solution for that you suggest changing ad type in account options. It doesn't solve shit. The site still serves the same shady ads to majority of its users. You can't pass on the responsibility to keep themselves safe to the users while completely disregarding their security on your end. That is indefensible.

To be fair, I don't have a gelbooru account and don't feel I need one - I just go to source. Pixiv and twitter covers like 95% of artists I care about. If I want to find new artists to follow, I just check out their retweets/recent bookmarks. Gelbooru's mostly useful as a backup for when someone deletes their twitter account in a fit of rage. At this point I'd rather avoid it if possible.

Does gelbooru still run ads that redirect you to hostile sites? Haven't used that shithole in a year. It's not like there aren't a thousand other options for finding hentai.

it's not as bad as nhentai with the constant popups. i feel like i'm going to have a seizure from all the popups opening and then instantly being closed. and even with ublock origin i sometimes get popups getting through.
>>
>>4766623
also no down votes anymore
>>
>>4766623
Sad thing is that it still has the largest selection out of anything. That's pretty much the only reason I tolerate how shitty it is now so I can at least discover new artists to follow. And considering that the second best, Danbooru, blocks certain tags like fags unless you pay them shekels, I'd rather tolerate some shitty ads.
>>
>>4770041
Well this was because assholes used some scripts to downvote things en masse.
It was insane in some places.
Damn, despite all the shit (the thumbnail one being the worst, even if it works for me - and they should fix the pixiv links already) it's still the best booru.
Sanka has a shitty endless scroll no one should ever use and dan has limits like loli and two-tag-search for non-paying users.
>>
>>4766623
basically every site is moving that way. if the ads werent bad people wouldnt use ad blocker but the ads are just obnoxious and lately have been viruses disguised as ads and the sites KNOW this

I've left Gelbooru for Danbooru in the last years thanks to that ads
>>
>>4770058
yeah unfortunately all sites seem to be moving this way but ironically its just a big fucking viscous cycle of
have ads>users use adblock>use anti adblocker and use malicious ads

They show loli/shotashit which doesn't allow them to display their ads.

>>4769448
Stop with the bullshit, sankaku has all the content of gelbooru with the bonus they don't give a shit to artists requesting to take out uploads, also you can block with two clicks any tag like 3d, furry or any shit in the main page of your account. The new anti-adblock, however, is indeed a pain in the ass.

>>4771561
or you could stop pretending you're a poorfag and pay the $20 to upgrade danbooru, best money I ever spent
>>
The real problem is a lot of those ads are total boner killers.
>>
How much has Gelbooru's traffic dropped off? Ads are one thing but they seem to have a lot of malicious ads on there, which means turning off addblock isn't a smart idea ether. At this point you might as well make it a subscription only site, then at least they won't be spreading around malware.
>>
>>4770624
I'm so fucking tired of seeing these ads with jailbait with obnoxious faces. They aren't even cute, and half the time they have their clothes poorly photoshopped off.

I'll never use gelbooru until you can search through your favorites like you can in sankaku and danbooru.

>>
>>4766623
Just configure your adblocker properly, retard. The site actually works better than ever, you just can't tell because your filters are blocking vital site elements.

Actually, scratch that, don't fix your adblocker. The site need idiots like you to give its ads impressions and clicks so the servers can keep getting paid for and the rest of us can browse in comfort. :^)

Just use noscript for sankaku ads along with an ad blocker if you're on firefox, I haven't noticed any relevant functionalities gone.

It used to work on gelbooru until recently too until they broke it with the thumbnail crap, I'm waiting for the guy who's making the ublock filter list to come up with something stable for at least a month or so until trying to use this piece of shit site again, not enabling ads for that scum ever.

Yep, Gelbooru went to total dogshit. I set up a custom filter that universally blocks the site. Danbooru is slightly better, but only slightly.

> the latter being far superior
What a laugh. It's not about quality, it's about who posted it and if the mods that are awake have a boner for it.

It took weeks for them to approve a lot of Princess Principal artwork because the anime hasn't officially aired. Even Kuroboshi's stuff weren't approved until AFTER the anime aired.
Plus, if you check the deleted tags, you'd find quite a lot of quality content being ignored, while trashier content gets approved right away.

It may be a "quality" booru, but its a very, very incomplete one at that.
